Default Viewing the moto g outdoors in sunlight

What's up with not being able to see this phone outside in sunlight? I've tried auto brightness and maximum brightness. The screen just seems so dim compared to other phones... anybody else feel this way?

Yup. Just turn sideways or backwards to the sun and cast a shadow over it and itīs legible. It may be dimmer than some other phones, but AFAIK itīs not that much worse.

For me, I only realise how dirty the screen is when I use it in bright sunlight - a quick wipe down with a screen cleaner wipe and visibility is great.

Cheap screen protectors can also wreck visibility in bright sunlight.
